Conservatives, Trump and the Porn Star

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/455553/trump-stormy-daniels-social-conservative-hypocrisy

  • Does it make a difference that the woman was a porn star?
  • When does “make a nice living” become a smear?
  • Virtue signalling, MAGA-signaling, the social demand to be “all-in”

This is about Trump but my interest in it isn’t really Trump, it’s the tribal dynamic of loyalty.

We feel it in church and in politics. We like to denounce it in others when it makes them hypocrites. We want low resolution representations of our rivals but demand high resolution understanding of ourselves. pvk
